My social media presence is down to Reddit, to the extent that Reddit is social media, and Mastodon. So it's Mastodon or bust!
This tool was tremendously useful in nuking my Twitter account, and while I used it as a flamethrower it can be much more granular than that.
I made an image for a future blog post explaining the Fediverse.
